AFP’s Congress 2010 begins today in Toronto and Miratel is pleased to be a sponsor

We are involved in providing fundraising services all year round and we are extremely excited and honoured to be taking part in this week’s Congress 2010 –  the premier gathering of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) here in Toronto. The two day conference takes place from November 30-December 1 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Miratel is proud of our lasting commitment to some of Canada’s largest nonprofit groups and see our new affiliation with the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) as an extension of that. The upcoming Congress 2010 event promises to be the largest of its kind and the most significant gathering of key fundraising decision makers ever in Canada. As such, we look forward to being business sponsors and meeting others dedicated to professional fundraising.  The AFP event in Toronto is especially poignant as the organization is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and their mission and commitment remains as vibrant as when they were formed.

“AFP believes that to guarantee human freedom and social creativity, people must have the right to freely and voluntarily form organizations to meet perceived needs, advocate causes, and seek funds to support these activities”.

Since our inception in 2000, Miratel has been solidifying our reputation as industry leaders by consistently raising the bar for the professional fundraising sector. Although telephone fundraising remains our core competence, we have expanded our fundraising services beyond the inbound and outbound call centre to offer eCommerce and letter shop mail house solutions.  To date Miratel have successfully managed over 150 fundraising campaigns for more than 30 different charitable organizations. In that time we have handled more than 40 million donor transactions by phone, web, mail and fax and have helped generate over $1.3 billion in gross fundraising revenue.

Congress 2010 looks certain to be a memorable experience with more than 800 attendees from the fundraising services industry looking to network, discuss trends and forge new strategies for the coming years. The conference also offers a superb selection of workshops that will focus on the industry in 2011 and beyond. The AFP Greater Toronto Chapter is the largest chapter of AFP in the world, representing more than 1,300 memberships. Miratel welcomes the opportunity to meet all members in attendance and be able to introduce their full range of fundraising services that have purposefully been developed to aid the professional fundraising market such as:

  • Donor programs for phone and web
  • Outbound telephone fundraising
  • End-to-end lottery management services
  • Donation processing for phone, web, mail and fax
  • Telethon support
